On the heels of Thru the Haze IPA, Bear Republic Brewing Co. has recently released its follow up, Drift Racer Hazy Double IPA. Expect a more pronounced juicy, fruit forward flavor profile and a smooth mouth feel with just enough bitterness on this one.
Drift Racer Hazy Double IPA showcases some of the hottest new hop varieties including Galaxy, Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon. “This beer is the culmination of years of working to make an unfiltered beer as clear as possible, and then turning that knowledge on its head,” said Bear Republic’s Master Brewer Peter Kruger in a statement. “We’re proud to deliver an unfiltered ale with this much character. We’ve designed Drift Racer to have huge tropical impact, and because of this the haze comes through. Drift Racer will resonate with diehard and casual craft beer fans alike. Looking for juicy? Look no further.”
When pairing foods with Drift Racer, its recommended to pair traditional pub fare foods like hamburgers, wings, fries and chicken & waffles.
